Clouds is a colourful, innovative and individual interior design element for your home.
The internationally renowned designers Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec made an innovative concept for your house with Kvadrat: Clouds, an interlocking system made of textile modules. Clouds can be mounted at the wall or ceiling.
Clouds evolves an unusual, three-dimensional effect and develops itself with every element.
The inviting irregular surface encourages owning art works and realizes visions. Because Cloud’s attractiveness depends on personal appearance.
The modules are made of single elements and are connected with elastic bands. If it is about constructing a simple design or a complex, decorative room divider or separating wall - work is done really easy, fast and uncomplicated.
The modules can be connected in a simple way to an individual style and they bring new ideas in every home, being versatile every time.
It was the work on the North Tiles, also a corporate work with Kvadrat, which inspired the two French designer for the concept Clouds - a simpler version than North Tiles for the private use.
„When I look into a design- or architecture magazine every now and then, I'm getting a shock about all the cold rooms“, says Ronan Bouroullec.
He explains: “When we got the order of Kvadrat, we wanted to create a design solution, which was soft and inviting. And our goal was to find a solution, which was so simple and through, that it didn't need any expensive craftsmen, but could be mounted by normal people without polishing, adjusted, or further treatments”.
Anders Byriel, Kvadrats manager, believes that soft fabrics come back in public houses and private households:
„Over years the tendency was to use less fabrics. Curtains are gone just like carpets, and our chairs have braided seats and backrests, and every accessory is made of glass, concrete, stone or wood, which might be nice, but hard as well. But the development changed. More and more human find out, that the soft material doesn't just feel soft, it is also an aesthetic beauty and has a big effect on the acoustic in our rooms. In the last years it became clear, how important acoustic level is for our daily well-being“, explains Anders Byriel.
Each element of Clouds has two colours. Front- and backside are in one of both chosen colours.
